Would appreciate any information on the condition of a Down Syndrome 
child who also had infantile spasms at about 4 months (West Syndrome) and 
what the likely prognosis is for mental and physical development over the 
long term.
The Child is now 15months old but still muscle tone is poor following 
epileptic activity.  Current treatment is 6ml of Epilim twice a day. Are 
there any other background treatments to prevent breakthrough of seizure 
We are coping but have some fretful moments some days!
Please email magnet at or fax +64 4 565 1727 (24hr)
Thank you.
